Land That Time Forgot, The (1975)

A British supply ship is sunk by a German submarine in 1916. The survivors are taken prisoner by the captain but when the submarine runs out of fuel the party has to land on an uncharted island in the Antarctic, where they discover, to their horror, dangerous prehistoric creatures.

This is the first, and worst, of the trilogy of Edgar Rice Burroughs lost world adventures produced by Amicus, despite the fact that it was co-scripted by sci-fi giant Michael Moorcock.

In director Kevin Connor’s excessively fake and slipshod saga, Doug McClure is out of his depth as the heroic lead, and the puppet monsters – a phoney amalgam of prop heads and men in rubber suits dangling on wires – are just as weak.
